We Find Water

Water Well Drillers Tap a New Source of Knowledge

According to the World Water Council, the population on Earth has tripled in the twentieth century, but our water consumption has increased six times. As the population continues to increase, so will the demand for water and the consequences may be devastating. In America, some rural areas and cities are facing water shortages and increased contamination of the supply. Larger populations mean that our infrastructures must increase to keep up with demand, and the water system (even in a wealthy country like America where we can and do take our water for granted) suffers. Imagine the problems in poorer countries such as Africa where the climate is drier and the conditions are worse. Water well drillers can now tap into a new source of knowledge to help search out water.
Clearly, more sources of water are needed. Water affects many areas of life, beyond drinking and bathing. We use it for food production as well. One thousand liters of water is needed to produce one kilogram of wheat. Increased use by humans can also threaten the aquatic ecosystems and their species. As our need for water increases, the amount of water that we will have for all these aspects is threatened. As the resource becomes increasingly scarce, tensions among the water users will intensify.
Seismoelectric technology presently exists that let the water well drillers know where the water is underground. This takes all the guesswork out of drilling for water. Now the water well drillers know that there is water underground before they start drilling. They can also be aware of how much water there and how long it will last. They can tell how at what volume the water will flow and how deep the aquifer is. At the heart of this technology is a computer-receiver which, combined with software, detects electrical signals by passing through the layers of rock, sediment and soil beneath the surface. A sharp sound pulse moves downward and grabs the water ions away from the rock. An electrical impulse is sent back to the surface carrying information about the depth, thickness and quality of the water. The depth of the aquifer is known by how long it takes the impulse to reach its destination and the quality of the water is estimated by the strength of the signal that penetrates the water. The water’s depth is estimated by the orderliness of the signal. Before the water well drillers begin to drill they will know where they should begin.
This technology can help anyone who needs to drill a well. Imagine how useful it can be during the times of shortage, of drought, when water is needed. This equipment can locate water faster and easier than it has been done in the past. Using previously unavailable technologies, British scientists have recently discovered that beneath the ground countries all across Africa lay untapped groundwater resources that are said to be about 100 times the water that is currently on the surface. This water was previously unknown but now has huge potential to solve one of the greatest problems caused by the impact of climate change. A lot of the guesswork and mystery is taken away from the water well drillers before they drill for water, and whether in Africa or the USA, the damage is lessened, the cost is lessened and the uncertainty is lessened. Before you call in the water well drillers, remember this new source of knowledge, seismoelectric survey equipment, can help to locate the groundwater before drilling.

Water Well Drilling Necessary in Rural Areas

While urban communities have treated water piped in to homes and businesses, rural residents or those living in small communities often have to experience water well drilling to ensure a safe and taste-free supply.

It’s relatively easy to find a good water well driller if you go online to find a reliable operation in your area, but first you need to find the source of clean, fresh groundwater. You will save hundreds of dollars if you have located the groundwater before the drilling rig arrives, and drillers get paid whether they find water or not, and the costs as they search in several different possible locations will rise until they are successful.

If you want to get fully informed on water well drilling go to www.wefindwater.com where American Water Surveyors is your source for answering all your questions. They have authored the book, What You Should Know Before You Drill a Water Well. It’s the only book available for individuals or companies that are considering drilling water well.

Groundwater comes from the rain, snow or hail that falls throughout the year in the North American climate. The water trickles down through the soil, gravel, and sand until it reaches a saturation point, the top of which is called a water table. It may be located many feet below the surface of the ground, or just beneath it. Usually it is clean and fresh but occasionally it may have become polluted. The only way to ensure it is safe for drinking is to get it tested by asking the professionals at AquaKnow what they recommend. You can reach them by calling 877-734-7661 extension 2, or check out their web site at www.aquaknow.com. At American Water Surveyors, we can determine groundwater depth and other important factors before the drilling begins.

Besides being a vital ingredient in successful day-to-day living for drinking, cooking, bathing, and watering gardens and crops, groundwater is an important component which engineers must consider when planning any kind of structure as the presence of groundwater may cause slope instability. For example, groundwater could cause weakness in a protective device such as a dam, which is built to prevent flooding.

When water well drilling, it is important to consider whether it is soft or hard. The amount of chemicals determines its quality, with too much calcium carbonate making the water very hard, leaving a scaly deposit on pipes and household implements and preventing soaps and shampoos from performing properly. Soft water is preferred but is not always available. Fortunately, water treatment systems can be added which the hard water runs through, greatly improving the quality and making it soft. Groundwater may have excessive amounts of iron, which is also removed by treatment when softening the water. The environmental effects of industrial plants, massive agricultural operations, leaking septic tanks, leaking oil or gas storage tanks, and municipal landfills can cause the quality of clean groundwater to deteriorate so it’s important to locate good clean water at a safe depth.

If you are considering water well drilling, you need to contact American Water Surveyors, whose portable equipment can come to any location. We have clients all over the United States, and they include farmers, ranchers and home owners, as well as golf course developers and municipalities.
